No Trend - Too Many Humans

No Trend were a rather infamous punk band from Maryland that were active for six years or so during the 80s. They really pissed people off. Too Many Humans is swathed in compelling, unabashed misanthropic disdain. Consider every aspect of your life as a functioning member of society; No Trend were disgusted by them all. They are similar to Flipper, both thematically and in sound, but they are faster, and well, more pissed off. While for Flipper there is occasional light in the bleak tunnel of life, for No Trend there is no end to the pitch black and cold abyss of everyday reality. With snotty as fuck vocals, messy guitar and severely delightful bass lines, No Trend put into song all those nagging antisocial thoughts about the world that you have been hiding in the back of your mind. So the next time you feel as if you despise everything and everyone around you, listen to Too Many Humans and realise you're no fucking better.
